The long-overdue 2022 Toyota Tundra may have been worth the wait, at least if you have been hoping for a less anodyne full-size pickup.
The latest round of teaser images released by the automaker show what might be the most outlandish leather upholstery ever put in a new vehicle, let alone a full-size pickup. From the single small image Toyota released, the seats on the off-road-oriented TRD Pro version will feature a subtle tech camo appearance behind their perforated inserts in addition to the expected embroidered logos and contrasting stitching.
It also appears that the Tundra will finally offer the automaker’s Multi-Terrain Select system, or MTS, which has long been offered in certain versions of the 4Runner SUV and Tacoma pickup. MTS features several traction control modes for off-road use. The control knob also shows Crawl Control, which is essentially an off-road cruise control and downhill assist control that keeps the vehicle moving at ultra-low speeds on steep descents.
We can see that at least some versions of the Tundra will likely retain a conventional shift lever with a leather-like gate rather than push buttons like those employed in the GMC Sierra or a knob like the Ram 1500.
The final image shows a wireless charging pad. The Easter Egg here is a photo that seems to show a few Tacoma pickups and a 4Runner in a landscape that appears to be Moab, Utah. All these new features add up to a more interesting Tundra than the outgoing model. See Toyota Tundra models for sale
